Full description

Travel back in time on a 4-hour tour of London. The combined sightseeing tour includes a ride on a vintage double-decker Routemaster bus and a short trip along the River Thames. End your excursion with spectacular views of the city from one of the panoramic pods of the London Eye. Head off for a tour of the city onboard a vintage double-decker bus. Pass historic attractions such as the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, and the Tower of London. Admire Sir Christopher Wren’s iconic St. Paul’s Cathedral. Swap land for water and take a short trip along the River Thames, looking out for Shakespeare’s Globe, HMS Belfast, London Bridge, and much more. Back on dry land, re-join the bus and head for Buckingham Palace, home to the British royal family.

On the morning tour, you'll arrive in time to see the famous Changing of the Guard ceremony, as soldiers dressed in their iconic uniforms march to military music. If there is no Changing of the Guard, you'll have a photo stop at the palace instead. Complete your London excursion with spectacular views across London’s rooftops as you enjoy a complete circuit of the London Eye, the world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel.

Settle into one of the 32 high-tech glass capsules, which take approximately 30 minutes to revolve entirely. See Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and Westminster Abbey from a unique, elevated perspective.

Me and my family went on this tour 2 adults and 2 children (9+15). I’m so glad we had booked this tour it was really exceptional, we all enjoyed it very much. The tour man was great he was very good at his job. Sorry forgot his name. The cruise down the river Thames was also amazing the guy on there made us all very welcome and pointed out all the different place down by the river. Amazing. Finally we had the London eye booked on our tour. (Don’t be put off by the queue) the queue was really long but went down in no time. This was an amazing experience. I’d highly recommend this tour it’s great. Thanks again for an amazing experience.

Was a great trip. The guide was great, gave a lot of information. There were many sights to see and the short trip down the Thames was nice too. Everything was super organized. The ride in the LondonEye was also great, no waiting. Only the place of departure was unfortunately wrongly described, it started at a different gate. It was a bit stressful to find out, but it worked out in the end.

Good impression of the city in a few hours !!!

The tour was very nice. Started the bus tour where you occasionally got off the bus. The guide also did it very funny and told nice stories. Then the tour and finally the London Eye. Really recommended. The complete tour is fun to do, especially if you do not know London yet, right in a few hours a good view of the city because you will come to different places.
